Today I’d like to welcome Louisa Bacio to my blog. She’s talking about one of my favorite subjects: Vampires. But that’s not all you’ll find in her books… Take it away Louisa!
The “Un” Vampire
After finishing the novella Mirabella’s Mardi Gras Ménage, I reflected on the “humanizing” of my vampire character, Nick. Does he truly have vampiric characteristics?
In the erotic series The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf, the paranormals are called The Others. With the vampires, there are those who fit in within society. Most might consider them odd – with abnormal hours and a seductive quality – and then there are the Rogues, those who hunt to appease blood lust and see humans as prey.
The clashing world of The Others plays heavier in some books more than others. For Mirabella’s Mardi Gras Ménage, the story primarily deals with the title’s namesake, Mirabella, who is the niece of the Quarter’s Voodoo Queen.
While the hero character Nick doesn’t go out on a feeding frenzy, sucking the lifeforce from every moving creature, this story features more of his internal soul searching. He needs to discover his true nature, and come to grips with his self-worth: Ultimately, does he deserve to love?
Tell me: How do you like your vampires? A little bit naughty? With a conscious and a soul?
Thanks so much for hosting me today. Look forward to your visit later this month!
Mirabella’s Mardi Gras Ménage
Constantly under the watchful eye of her Voodoo priestess aunt, Mirabella longs to break free during the events of Mardi Gras. Escapades draw her into the arms of Marguerite, a fiery redhead with a passion for life, and Nick, a familiar vampire who’s haunted by his transformation and past.
What starts as a new experience – a Mardi Gras Ménage – soon turns deadly, and none of their lives will ever be the same.
Louisa Bacio is the author of six erotic novels, including the paranormal series The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf, and numerous steamy short stories.
Bacio enjoys soaking up the sun in Southern California, and spending time with her family. In addition to writing and editing, Bacio teaches college courses in English, journalism, film studies and popular culture.
